My little Bench

I found this bench at an estate auction, I waited all day, and finally ended up paying around $10..  (I was worn out)!

It looked kinda worn, it had seen better days, but I knew that there was a new life under there and I just had to by my time...and it would all come together.

I could not decide...paint it, cover it, refinish it...

While at my mom's, (of course I had to go to all the shops around that area...) their little town is known for the shopping....Prairie Grove, AR
If you get to the area, be sure to check out "THE BACK PORCH" you will love it....SMILES

Any way at another shop, I found the perfect fabric...and on sale to boot...wwoohhooo...I knew just what was in store for my little bench.

Of course I was so excited when I got home, I tried to explain to my husband...I finally had the answer to this bench delima...
you could just see the excitement in his eyes....YEAH RIGHT!!!

So at the first sight of decent weather (I so need a paint room) the plan was set into action.

I cleaned it up, took it apart, a light sanding, and then a good wipe down...

By now I knew that I wanted it to match my dresser (the one I just fell in LOVE with)...you will see it a little later on...So into my paint stash!!!

I came out with Krylon Duel White...






After a couple of fresh coats...the new life was beginning...

I let this dry for a day or so...I really wanted to finish it, but well, my body said NO!!!

It has been a rough year for me and this crap that tries to dictate my life on a daily basis...

SO after a couple days of rest...I got out the beautiful fabric and continued on...

 First I did a little sanding...you know I like the stuff roughed up a bit...

But just a bit on this little beauty...

Then with some quilting batting
(I just happened to have this laying around) and my dependable little staple gun...I covered the top and put it all back together...

I just love this fabric, and with everything I have read for the 2012 colors....this fabric was meant for me!!!





















In this photo you can see the dresser I mentioned above.
Some where I have a pic of the whole thing...mirror I made and lamps that matched perfect...oh well another blog...
LAUGHS!!!


Now My Little space in the world is complete...well maybe a little work on the dresser in the near future...but all in all I am extremely happy with how it all turned out,

 MY HUSBAND IS TOO!!!!

HE DOES NOT HAVE TO PRETEND TO UNDERSTAND MY MIND ON THIS SUBJECT ANYMORE!!!!
                                            
                                                 BIG SMILES
Until next time...

Thanks for stopping by....
